Since the end of socialism scholars have been debating whether post-socialist welfare policies in Eastern Europe and the former USSR could be considered converging into Western European patterns, and possibly fit one of Esping's welfare state classification (1990), or else it should be considered an exception or a self-standing case and therefore studied beyond these categories. This article contends that neither of the above interpretative frameworks might be appropriate because they both miss the role of informal welfare policies and informal renegotiations of welfare policies. Going beyond the transitional-alternative paradigm this article situates itself in the structure-agency debate in defining how welfare policies are renegotiated by domestic and local actors and come to form a partially new system. By doing this, rather than seeing the former socialist region as an exception, it suggests that the very debate about welfare state and welfare policies should be revisited in order to consider also informality as a major element of social policy-making
